Why you should never believe newspapers

Article on Al Gore, and how he’s not what they said he was.

So, why write it, then?  I was never a Gore fan (the real juice on him was, curiously, never reported) but, given who his 2000 opponent was, how different would things be just now?  The revisionism is quite nauseating, particularly given that its because he’s a celebrity now, rather than an all-round good guy.

Just goes to show, freedom of speech is sometimes a lovely way of peddling bile.   Please note, by the way, that I don’t make a habit of reading Vanity Fair.  Thanks.
